Comfortable, charming, and friendly, I highly recommend Anam Cara as the place to stay when in Philadelphia. Located in the historic Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia, it is only a short block walk to the train station providing access to Center City.

Ms. Vessey is a delightful hostess, assuring her guests that their comfort is important to her and tending to whatever concerns they may have. We actually stayed for 8 months in our cozy apartment, loving the proximity to the train station and charming Germantown Avenue, which is replete with lovely restaurants and shops.

the location is fine with easy access to city center...bathroom hasn't been updated since Herbert Hoover was President...clean room, but dated furnishings. The $100 per night rate is not a bargain because it excludes breakfast. O.K. if you need or want a kitchen. (Better hotel value can be obtained in center city) The steam heat didn't prove adequate during colder... More

We stay at Anam Cara twice a year as we visit Philadelphia for medical reasons. Teresa is a great host and makes sure that we are comfortable and know how everything works. We'd left the Australian summer for the snow of Philadelphia and the place was a cozy little haven that we thought was a perfect home away from home.... More

The apartment was great for our needs and exactly as pictured. A cozy place to stay with a homy atmosphere. Location is super: a... More

Great location in a safe neighborhood with lots of shops and restaurants; it is nearby the train (a five minute walk) which will take you directly into Center City. My room was equipped with a queen bed, kitchen, fridge, microwave, an assortment of kitchen wares, table for four, cable TV, writing desk and free wi-fi. There is also a washer... More

We have been going every 6 months for the last year, and it´s one less thing to worry about our trip. It´s like going back home, very clean, very safe, very close to Germantown and the center of Chestnut hill is walking distance.

Anam Cara Accommodations is so wonderful, and feels like a home away from home. Everything you need to have a wonderful stay. Owner is so loving and will do almost everything for you to make you feel at home. It would not be a perfect vacation without Anam Cara.

I stayed at Anam Cara for three months while in Philadelphia on business. Let me tell, just finding a furnished apartment that would allow my large dog was quite a task! But I couldn't believe my luck to find one that was in such a fantastic neighborhood and with all the other amenities that I wanted. First of all, if... More
